On a spur of the moment getaway, we decided to be spontaneous and head to Bali for a long weekend. We’ve been a few times before, and with only a weekend up our sleeve, we thought we would treat ourselves and stay at the W Resort & Spa in one of their private villas.

With 229 retreats, suites and villas, the resort is designed for true tranquility. The W Hotel range spare no expensive when it comes to the decor, offering innovative touches and stunning views of the ocean and perfectly maintained gardens. 


The W Resort have options available at all price points, depending on how secluded you want your holiday to be. We opted for the 2,422 square foot (225 square metre) Marvelous One Bedroom Pool Villa offering a W Signature king size bed, living space, office space, munchie box, BOSE sound system and floor to ceiling windows overlook your own private pool. 




Upon our arrival, a make your own cocktail set was waiting for us to enjoy when we were ready. We quickly unpacked, put on our bathing suits and shook up some tasty cocktails before heading out to the pool to enjoy some sunshine.


If the bedroom area wasn’t amazing enough, the bathroom is every home owners dream! Complete with terrazzo bathtub, rain forest shower, side by side sinks, Bliss Spa amenities and plush bath robes to make this the utmost relaxing bathroom possible!




Moving outside to our private 25 square metre pool was completely surreal. With total privacy and stunning landscaping, the perfect oasis awaits. Take in the sun on one of your pool chairs, or sit back and relax on your own cabana bed. Food and drinks can be ordered at any time from the touch of a button and arrive within only a short time.





Moving to the public areas of the resort, another favourite is the tropical WET® pool, offering oversized beanbags for lounging, multilayered pools, and an abundance of sun chairs. One of my biggest pet peeves is not having enough chairs, and this place does not disappoint. In addition to seating around the pool, there is ample seating on the beach, plus cabana beds to hire if desired.
